Hi new user here from NZ, film a lot of motorsport over here and have just bought a Sony HDR XR500 and Vegas Pro 9.0.
Had a bit of a muck around with a slomo clip and then did some online tutorials c/ Youtube and so far it's great!
Last night I edited my first video, the program is awesome and very easy to use, I had the clip how I wanted it in about 3 hours. Then came time to render, and this is when the problems started.
I use my camera on the standard settings, have not uprated the video quality or downgraded it.
When I go to render, I select wmv 3mbp/s.. (In reality I do not know if this is a high compression / high quality file or average.) I then save my wmv and the rendering box pops up. then the min:hour left keeps going up and I hang at 0%, 2 hours later 0%... I've changed to a very low quality WMV and same thing, have also tried AVI. and I click cancel and can't get out so have to end task.
It's strange as my 20 second clip I did earlier rendered perfectly. I have googled it and I noticed that I can pre-render individual clips.. so I will try to do this tonight and see how it goes.
My System Specs:
3.1ghz AMD Dual Core
4gb 1033 Ram
9600GT 512mb card
Any help or tips in general would be very appreciated.
